A new exhibit entitled “Needle Arts” is now open at the Cloverdale History Center, 215 N. Cloverdale Blvd.

On display are an array of beautiful vintage knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting and embroidery works, including exquisite lace samples and a full size Pineapple Pattern Quilt, circa 1900. Visitors will also be intrigued by a glass display case of antique sewing tools from days-gone-by.

History Center hours are Thursday and Saturday 10 a.m to 4 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Sunday Noon to 4 p.m.

Call 894-2067 for more information.

    Several years ago while sorting through some of the textiles in the CHS collection, Marge Gray and I discussed the possibilities for an exhibit. I’m glad these beautiful examples of stitchery and needlework are now on display (and sorry that I won’t get to see it). The exhibits committee always does a wonderful job – be sure to thank those dedicated volunteers when you visit the Cloverdale History Center!
